m-Xylene is an organic solvent commonly used in histology for clearing tissues following dehydration in preparation for paraffin wax infiltration. Also used after tissue sections have been stained to make them hydrophobic so a coverslip may be applied with a resin in solvent.
Miscible in most organic solvents; immiscible with water.

Do you have the meta Xylene in drums/price? I am working on a project for Chemours in WV. Do you have the chemicals that could be in the mXylene? I need to know the impurities to insure compatibility in my process. Thanks,

Thank you for your question. We are not able to provide our m-Xylene in drum quantities. That quantity is beyond our capabilities at this time. We are focused on providing this reagent in smaller research quantities.
